Today is Day Zero of San Diego Comic Con – the last day of set-up and the first night of exhibiting, with a short but stressful preview night cracking the seal on the exhibit hall at 6 pm (or probably earlier, if past years are any indication). It’s actually been a relaxing run-up to the show, which has us all a little paranoid that something terrible is waiting in the wings. Hopefully those fears will be proven wrong!
Otakon was an awesome show – lots of fun, lots of in-jokes, lots of great fans. Any show where our biggest problem is selling out of product early doesn’t really merit much complaint! The fault there was our own: inventory planning for cons is always a tricky guessing game. Too little product, and you wind up with limited sales and disappointed fans; too much, and you have to cover expensive shipping for the remainders.
Anyway, gotta run – hauling boxes over to the con floor now for our final set-up run. Online time’s going to be limited, as we’ve got four people sharing one computer/internet connection here, but I’ll do my best!
Also: I have tickets for the Amanda Palmer CBLDF concert, AND an awesome date for the show. Huzzah!
